Feb. 16 is Click It or Ticket day

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office will be joining efforts with statewide law enforcement on Thursday, Feb. 16, for an aggressive Click It or Ticket enforcement in an effort to get more motorists to buckle up and to save more lives.

"Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket enforcement," said Sheriff Brad DeLay. "We'll be out there to remind you seat belts can, and do, save lives."

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 20 percent of Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Even worse, 63 percent of occupants killed in crashes in Missouri were unrestrained.
